The movie "The Terminator" starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, was probably the first to really bring the concept of the cyborg to the forefront.

The movie's creator James Cameron probably never suspected that his film in 1984 would spawn a generation of cyborg fans -- still very much alive 30 years later! February 2, 2015
